Words to “Peters World” (written by Dr. King)

We set out for a trip,

around the world September 14

would change our lives.

Our hearts were open and pure,

as a Childs

Our minds and hearts were anticipating wonder


Our Strength will always be

our hearts were set free

Now we are able to see,

The beauty of the world and you and me.

Experience would take us father, then we have ever dreamed.

For around the world, we have learned, what love really means.

Knowledge and curiosity, all waiting at the door

No one could ask for more.


Our Strength will always be

our hearts were set free

Now we are able to see,

The beauty of the world and you and me.
